Transfers are tomorrow! And for the first time EVER, I'm being transferred!!
Elder Campbell is going to be training a new missionary in the Coal Mine area, and I'll be follow-up training a missionary who'll be on his second transfer. We got this news on Friday, and were asked to attend the "Training Training" on Saturday morning with President Murdock.
There is a missionary in Ken Caryl whose trainer is going home, so he'll need a follow-up trainer. At the end of our meeting on Saturday, I went up to President and said, "President, if I'm going to Ken Caryl to follow-up train Elder Wilkinson, will you tell me now so I don't have to pack up all my stuff and drag to the mission office, just to take it back to Littleton?"
He said, "Umm... I can tell you that. No. You're not going to Ken Caryl. You're... going on an adventure."
I asked him if I was going to the island, and when he looked all confused I explained the story of Chris' President telling him he'd like his new area, and him being sent to the island. He said, "No. You're not going to an island." I could have guessed that.
But I think President Murdock likes to mess with people's minds. Because At first, I was thinking, Oh. Cool! An adventure! And then I was like, I wonder what that could mean... And then I was like, What does that mean?? Aaaahhhh!!
But it's all good; I'll find out tomorrow.
Thank you for the Christmas package! I have to transfer all of the presents with me, so I just put them in my bike box.
There are people here I'm sad to leave, but I'm also really excited for whatever adventure lies ahead! I hope all is well with you, and that you stay righteous!
A Thought from Mom:
“A missionary will not be effective if he or she does not have a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon. Indeed, I believe a missionary's effectiveness and success is directly related to his or her own conversion to, testimony of, and love of the Book of Mormon."
~Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin
